Beyond the Barricade returns to Sandon Hall

beyond the barricadeOnce again Staffordshire’s Sandon Hall is set to play host to the UK’s longest running musical concert tour, Beyond the Barricade, as part of two evenings of exquisite music in the stately home’s 50-acre formal gardens

Beyond the Barricade will headline on Friday, 8th September; recreating original West End and Broadway musical hit songs with amazing authenticity. With a cast made up of past principal performers from Les Miserables, this two hour show is a must-see for fans of musical theatre.

On Saturday, 9th September Saturday evening Gordon Giltrap – widely regarded as one of the best acoustic guitar players in the world – will draw on a career spanning 5 decades and a wide range of genres including classical, soaring prog rock and folk guitar – to entertain the crowds. The evening will then take a more classical tone as Access All Arias, the hugely talented three-part harmony group featuring Sarah Ryan, Helen Hobson and Sarah Eyden, presents a classical repertoire with trademark humour and personality.

With other musical guests performing over the two nights, picnics welcome, ‘Music under the Stars’ promises a fantastic atmosphere in a stunning setting – as Andy Reiss, founding member of Beyond the Barricade, explains:

“We have played Sandon Hall for several years and just love the setting – as a Staffordshire lad who still lives locally I always enjoy playing on ‘home turf’. This year we’re delighted to be sharing the bill with Gordon and the Access All Airas ladies – they are hugely talented performers and I am looking forward to watching them on the Saturday evening.”
